Who Can Become a Resident?
Individuals and families experiencing homelessness who have resided in our five-county service area (see illustration below) for at least the past 30 days are eligible to stay at Gateway House. Those who agree to actively work towards the goal of securing permanent housing may extend their residency by two-week increments for up to 90 days.
We work closely with the Morehead Ministerial Association to address the needs of those who come to us from outside the service area. GHC can make referrals to shelters in Lexington or Ashland, and can assist with transportation and food in these cases. Gateway House is not an emergency drop-in shelter.
